CB Richard Ellis´s entire Scottish planning team has resigned, in the biggest defection to hit the recently-merged firm to date.
The departed employees were all inherited from CB Hillier Parker. Director, Richard Slipper, and his team of three associates and two planners have joined GVA Grimley.
The defection temporarily leaves CBRE with no planning department in Scotland.
Stephen Brown, Head of Planning at GVA Grimley, commented: 'We are expanding our planning business, and Scotland was the missing part of our national picture.'
